Pembroke Castle, Pembrokeshire, west Wales
Architect: Walmsley, Thomas
Medium: Aquatint, coloured
Pembroke Castle is situated on a promontory between the Pembroke river and the Monkton Pill. The castle is surrounded by a large curtain wall which has five circular towers, a large gatehouse and ‘St Ann’s Bastion’- an edifice similar to the Traitor’s Gate in the Tower of London. The towers, which housed the residential chambers, were built astride the curtain wall thus creating separate sections of wall which were easier to defend. The castle complex included an inner and outer ward, two halls, a chapel and a very large round keep.
